    I'm trying to find out how the prices for PC technology have changed
    over the last 5-6 years. Unfortunately, I don't have any old
    computer-shopper or similar magazines available to me.

    Is anybody aware of websites that have tracked prices over the years?

    I think, you have just to find out, what kind of hardware was actually at
    any year and take the price of components of today.
    Normaly the price will be the same as the time, the hardware was 'in time'.

    Not quite. Prices for a complete entry-level system (computer with monitor)
    have been declining steadily over the years. Compare Dell's $399 2.2GHz Celeron
    special with a new no-name $99 monitor against the $4200 I paid in 1987 for a
    then mid-range 8MHz 286 with NEC MultiSync monitor. Neither Dell nor any other
    name-brand manufacturer ever has offered a system without monitor in the
    $399-$499 range until a few months ago. I'm speaking $US spent in the US, of
    course. Prices in other countries vary considerably... Ben Myers

    Yes, it's a small one. I was thinking about trying the library and I
    will.....an internet resource would just be more convenient...
